You get what you pay for
Posted Sep 21, 2016
Based on the photos on Expedia, I thought I was getting a simple, but very clean and adequately spacious room. I was wrong. The pictures were taken at certain angles and in good lighting, which made them look better. The room was very small and in a state of obvious disrepair. There was one employee who spent all day cleaning, and he did a good job, but the place needs repairs. The security bolt on my door was half missing, and next to the door handle, it looked like someone had broken in before. The walls looked stained. The wall above the head of the bed had holes where small light fixtures used to be, but now they were empty holes with wires inside. The bedding was white but had so many yellow stains. There was a wardrobe, but its location was awkward. It was impossible to have the wardrobe door and the bathroom door open at the same time. As for breakfast, don't even bother, unless you're the only one in the room. When I walked in the first time, there were about 15 people sitting down. There were only two kinds of crappy cereal and the milk had run out. A staff member walked in, and took an empty food tray out to the kitchen. When she walked back in, all that she had brought was enough scrambled eggs for two people, maybe 7 pieces of roti, and one loaf of white bread. I quickly learned not to bother with breakfast, except for having some coffee. The location is good if you arrived on the ferry and need some quick, but otherwise, no. It's far from all the touristy places.
